The K8 keyboard PC is so small and portable that you can actually fold it into the size of a wallet and keep it in your pocket — that’s how portable it is. One thing missing, though, is a monitor which the K8 connects to via an HDMI cable or using a VGA output cable.
Being so small and compact, you’d be forgiven to think that it’s a slouch when it comes to hardware specs. Rest be assured, the K8 is no slouch and features an Intel Cherry trail Z8350 1.83GHz CPU with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. These specs aren’t exactly range-topping but they’re decent for a Windows 10 computer you can fold and keep in your pocket.
There is also a built-in DPI touchpad with a maximum of 10 touch points, 2 USB ports and WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity. The keyboard features an 87 soft key waterproof design. Geekbuying is currently taking pre-orders for the cheaper version that features the 1.44GHz Z8300 processor at $199.99.

Although the K8 is super portable, I don’t see how it can be used as a mobile computer since it actually lacks a monitor. It’s probably aimed at users who like to haul their computers from one work location to another — from their office to home, for example, where monitors are readily available for use with the K8. It’s also a great option for those who work in tight spaces and want to reduce clutter.
